This goes out to Henry (primarily):

Under ProZ V2, it was possible to access individual subcommunities: those pages contained the names of the moderators, resources, etc. Is that still available?

If not, then please bring it back for these reasons:

- to my knowledge, there is no way to specifically locate a moderator. Unless you \"stumble\" across one of them (eg, in the forums) or do a one-by-one search of the ProZ members, it is impossible to know who the moderators are.

- you should establish a \"Resource Centre\" where translators can share, for each subcommunity, useful glossaries and information on dictionaries (I have found, based on some KudoZ questions, that some translators don\'t seem to have even the most standard and basic dictionaries; it would be useful, therefore, to share such information, including ISBN no., etc.). We could also update each other on new editions of existing dictionaries, etc.

I am sure that many of your members would find that highly useful.

Wow, what a good idea! I think Henry should immediately incorporate the facilities that are suggested.\'ressources for the sub-communities\' is a brilliant suggestion.

I\'m afraid this is \'old\' news: resources for the SC\'s existed already (well, let\'s say) almost two years ago and will be featured again very soon (I think/hope... Henry?).

It is still possible to acces the \"old\" subcommunities of v2. You can do that by clicking on any job posting for the respective SCs, and at the bottom left hand side of the opened page there is a red link to the SC-page. I have tried it myself, so I hope it works for you as well.

Thank you, Vesna-Z, for the tip. Yes, it works. Too bad, though, that the subcommunities are still running under v2.
